How about now when you have a totally separate deployment process / cycle for SSMS? It might not be that obvious, but this is extremely annoying when you can't copy-paste numbers from SSMS into Excel because Excel will try to convert the numbers into dates.

Thanks for following up. Unfortunatelly, right now, we don't have concrete plans or dates, but this is something we want to fix in the future

At least in Management Studio 2012 (Win 7, decimal separator , in windows regional settings) + SQL Server 2008 the following statement can be used to reproduce the problem:

select convert(float, 1.1), convert(numeric(2,1), 1.1)

The result will be: 1,1 and 1.1

In order to reproduce it, apart from using the given script, set your locale to use a comma as a decimal seperator instead of a point.

Not yet. Are you blocked by this issue?

any progress on this?

We have the same behaviour when I use ssms2008 r2 to connect to an sql 2000 server.

Thanks for your feedback. We will evaluate this bug for a future release. Right now, you can reformat the values using the most appropriate FormatProvider class. Due to a infrastructure limitation, I'll be closing this issue and re-open it in a different database in order to track it better.

Same behaviour on SSMS SQL2008R2 SP1 :-(

If I change Regional Settings on the server to US English I too get consistent results.
But if I change back the Regional Settings to Swedish (comma is decimal separator) I get dot a decimal separator for DECIMAL and comma as decimal separator for FLOAT.

I could not repro this issue on SQL Server 2008 R2 or Denali using the script provided. Are their any other inputs/steps that I can try?
